Question Setting up NIC card


I just installed RH 7.2, and I was wondering if there is a way to get Linux to detect my NIC card. Should it have come up automatically in the hardware browswer and network config after install or do I have to install it manually? Any help would be great.

Thanks

giving us the type of nic card might help ? you can use the netcfg utlity tool to try and setup the nic and probe for the type of card you have.

Sorry, i'm pretty sure its an NE2000 compatible, and I think its set to irq 3 and i/o 300. I'm not sure what i/o 1 and 2 are though, and I'm not sure what to enter after dma0 and dma1 and mem as well. As you can tell, this is a learning experience.

Thanks for the help

Also, I know this sounds stupid but how do I run netcfg? I'm running Gnome, should I see it in the utilities menu? Or do have to run it from a terminal window? or do I need to get it fromsomewhere else? Sorry for the hassle

If netcfg is just the network configurator, then I know what program you're talking about, but I can't find where to autoprobe for a nic card, and I don't know how to set it up manually. (It says "device not initialized, check settings" whenever I try, so i'm obviously not putting in the right settings)

well the netcfg will probe for the type of card you have. if your getting that error, then its not detecting it properly.
you may want to take a look at the ethernet howto at www.linuxdoc.org , most likely have to install the card manually.

I posted some NIC troubleshooting procedures in this thread a while ago. Give them a shot and tell us how it goes. (The first thing to do is to turn of Plug-N-Play support in your BIOS.)

For Redhat 7.2, typing "neat" (no qoutes) in a terminal window will bring up their network configuration utility.
